This is a photograph of a painting by Chris Siemer titled "Mt. Lassen". It depicts Lassen Peak, also known as Mt. Lassen, which is the southernmost active volcano in the Cascade Range. Lassen rises 2,000 feet above the surrounding terrain and has a volume of a half a cubic mile, making it one of the largest lava domes on Earth. This painting was possibly one of many that Siemer created for display by the L.A. Chamber of Commerce. Muralist, painter Christian Siemer (1874-1940) was born in New Zealand and settled in Los Angeles in 1906 at the age of 32. He was soon commissioned by the Chamber of Commerce to paint a series of mural-size canvases to promote the area. A master of color and composition, architecture was often included in his paintings. Siemer resided and was active in Los Angeles until his death on February 6, 1940.
